Tohatsu America Corp. has added some new features to its four-, five- and six-hp outboard models.
Modifications from the previous generation include a front-mounted shift lever and a 110mm extension of the tiller handle. The updated outboards also feature larger carrying handles and holding grips, allowing for easier transport. Also, on internal fuel tank models, the relocation of the fuel cap to the front of the outboard makes refueling faster and more convenient.
The updated models, along with the entire line of Tohatsu outboards, have achieved 3-star ratings for low emissions from the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
The four- and five-hp models are available in 15- and 20-inch shaft length models and the six-hp model is available in 15-, 20-, and 25-inch shaft length models.
